Overview

THE NATURE AND SOURCES OF THE LAW (Second Edition, 1921) is a legal and jurisprudential classic, finally available in a quality eBook edition. Look for the Quid Pro Books publication (showing a cover image etching of John Chipman Gray, and specifically listing Quid Pro LLC as the publisher) for assurance of careful proofreading, proper eBook formatting, active Contents, new notes of the series editor, and linked footnotes. [Publisher's note: though this description may inexplicably appear under reprints by others (even those that are scanned from the 1909 edition), only the Quid Pro edition has the accurate reproduction, linked notes and Contents, and modern formatting for which the Legal Legends Series is known.]

John Chipman Gray was a noted lawyer and legal scholar of the progressive era, a Harvard law professor, and a founder of the Boston law firm Ropes & Gray. His important book analyzed the uses of precedent and custom, the meaning of law and legal rights, the differences between common law and civil law reasoning, deference to and interpretation of statutes and their occasional obsolescence, the role of morality and popular will, and the philosophical failings of Austin, Blackstone, and German thinkers of the day. Gray's anatomy of the philosophy of law, comparative law, precedent, and judicial thinking is considered to be a remarkable set piece in legal theory and history.

Presented in a high-quality NOOKBook edition, this volume is carefully rendered from the original, with an attention to detail and accuracy typically missing in modern reprints (in either print or digital, in fact). Its Table of Contents and extensive footnotes are linked and active. Pagination from the 1921 edition is even embedded into the text, for continuity of citations and consistency across digital and accepted printed platforms. Includes introductory and explanatory Notes of the Series Editor by Steven Alan Childress, J.D., Ph.D., a law professor at Tulane University. Legal Legends editions of classic works of law and political philosophy are unlike any digital versions available today, at any price.

Also in the Series are explained and introduced editions of Cardozo's THE NATURE OF THE JUDICIAL PROCESS (with new material by Harvard's Andrew Kaufman), Holmes' THE [ANNOTATED] COMMON LAW (adding 200 simple explanatory notes), Holmes' THE PATH OF THE LAW and Warren and Brandeis' THE RIGHT TO PRIVACY (with additions by Steven Alan Childress of Tulane), Llewellyn's THE BRAMBLE BUSH (with introduction by Wisconsin's Stewart Macaulay), and three works by Woodrow Wilson.
